Q.1. I'm not able to find the static values() method and the valueOf(String s) method for enums in the java.lang.Enum<E> specification. Where is this documented?

Q.2. Also, can we run the main method inside an enum as in code below?

As to #2, what happened when you tried?

I tried to run this from RAD, but no corresponding class found to run.

@Christopher, I got both these methods mentioned there, but these must be associated with some Class and so why they are not found in the java 6 API spec?

These are implicitly declared static methods.

How do you declare an enum as a class ?

Enums are compiled to a .class file.
